In most cases you don't need conflicting routing rules in
urls.py so it's easier to just
include('django.contrib.flatpages.urls'). As a free bonus you get to avoid all kinds of problems with other middleware, contextprocessors and the CSRF framework.
I can see how the middleware is useful if for some reason you have to put the flat pages in the same URL prefix another application uses but it's a workaround that breaks the documented routing behavior. I for one don't expect apps to provide their own url routing middleware instead of
urls.py and I can't see how flatpages is an exception here.
